Maybelline 'The Falsies Volum'Express Waterproof Mascara - Blackest Black
Honestly, I am not that hard to please when it comes to mascara. If it coats my lashes well, lengthens a fair amount and stays put - I'll generally like it. I saw mixed reviews about the Falsies online when it first came out, but I still wanted to try it. Two words: big mistake.
This is the worst mascara that I have ever tried. It doesn't allow you to layer it and put on multiple coats, it creates spider lashes and it refuses to come off - even with a good oil-based makeup remover. I can use a makeup remover, wash my face and take a shower and this is still clumped onto my lashes. It feel dry and untouchable while wearing it and I don't think it makes me look like I am wearing false lashes in the slightest.
I think there are definitely other mascaras out there that are much more worth the money - Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara comes to mind (love it still!) Don't waste your money on the Falsies and don't accidentally damage your lashes trying your hardest to remove it at the end of the night. I might have had a different experience if I was using the kind that wasn't waterproof but I like a waterproof mascara most of the time (in case I cry or my eyes water, I don't want it all over my face and hands!)
Have you tried this mascara? I have seen such mixed reviews over the months and am curious to know if you have had the same experience?
